Lee Byung-hun gets award for style
Lee thanked the awards show for the honor and urged audience members to vote in yesterday’s presidential election.
“It’s not because I starred in ‘Gwanghae,’ but honestly it’s so important to pick a great leader for the country,” Lee said.
He added that he was very surprised by the style award.
“At first I thought I’d get the fashion or creativity award,” Lee said.
Lee won a number of awards this year for his role as a Joseon king, Gwanghae.
The A-Awards show recognizes intellectual and creative men in their line of profession and is co-hosted by Audi Korea and the men’s publication Arena.
The 42-year-old Lee was also named Star of the Year at the CineAsia Awards in Hong Kong last week.
